[inaudible] you have to replace all the dollars out there with gold, the price of gold would have to be enormous. who thinks that would be maintained? >> there's a question right thing both of you, which is a deeply the large-scale asset purchases are ac
garnering just a little bit of who is that person along with ron paul's campaign coming to an end. and by his own admission he says it's coming to an end. i think that ron paul's supporters would not be compromising their vote with a vote for the libertarian ticket, myself and judge jim gray. >> host: who we also talked to here on booktv. gary johnson 2012 is the web site, dot.com, i should say, and here is the cover of governor johnson's new book, "seven principles of good government: liberty, people and politics." out in august of 2012. >> is there a nonfiction author or book you'd like to see featured on booktv? send us an e-mail at booktv@cspan.org or tweet us at twitter.com/booktv. >> with a month left in 2012, many publications are putting together their year-end looks of notable books. booktv will feature several of these lists focusing on nonfiction selectn
or bare ron yes yes, you'd be hard pressed to find a person less ready to be involved in negotiations. anyone who reads here understands this. >> i mentioned -- that's just the structure that has evolved to deal with the issue, and the europeans -- the foreign minister of the european union takes that position as representing the european union, and other countries are represented. ordinarily by political directors. they don't have to be but that's how the issue evolved. so some of these strictures are continuity. they evolve and persist. who comes into that and the personalities that come to that are the function of those particular organizations. in that's case it's the european union. we tend to focus on who is on the other side of the table, the british representative or the american representative. the problem with the p-5, is who is on the other side of the table. these negotiations are stalemated, not because lady ashton because -- because of this limitation and because of the approach they have had on these issues. i think the stalemate of these conversations should be directe
from bill in redding connecticut. heine. >> caller: hello. ron paul has called for the federal reserve to be shut down. one interesting reason i thought is that he wants to bring money back to congress whereby they can do so without charging interest to itself. this is where it was done prior to 1913. it was also something that thomas jefferson and andrew jackson warned about, having these big banks take over the creation of harmony. it basically creates the money in charging interest on money that they create and of nothing to begin with. that's my question. >> guest: you know, so i have not really been focusing on money. it was really outside the four corners of my job. but what i would do is recommend to just about anyone if i could plug in the book, i'm just reading white house. i actually think that they really do a wonderful historical accounts of what you're talking about and how it applies today, so i would just refer to them because they have higher degree of expertise and i do in that area. to say it's a wonderful book. >> host: here is neil barofsky best seller, bailout, an
, a personal chef, john sinclair was around a lot, ron scott who is a great local character at the local chapter of the black panthers, such a wild mix of people and a tight community, so that is one neighborhood even though it was just a single block. there is a fire pitch in the back and people would hang around this bonfire in the eastern markets and the other neighbor i would say would be which we talk about a bit, part of the east side at the depopulated part of the east side that still has interesting pockets of people dealing with things. farnsworth st. a single block, basically one guy, almost like a hippie commune, you see other people who sort of connect all around them and put up these big fences and crazy and italian estuary and sort of like-. bad things happen too like drug murders but that was the neighborhood i kept going to again and again. >> i am going to ask the last question about the title which is a great title, which use a detroit just a detroit but it is a detroit city it is detroit city. you had to explain that to people. >> i don't know how to explain it. people
realize are ron burr is not someone they want near the white house. jefferson becomes president and jefferson the question is how much could matter? and if you look at the jefferson administration, historians are overwhelming the most important event of the jefferson administration was louisiana purchase. that's not surprising. if you double the size of the country peacefully and almost no cost, the enormous achievement for for any president. any president would want that on the rÉsume. so is jefferson a high impact president. if he had not been there, would the louisiana purchase happen anyway? and if you look there what you see is jefferson sent missionary to france to buy the louisiana territory. he didn't he sent them to buy the city of new orleans from fraps. the louisiana territory as a whole was not mentioned by anyone in the united states as even a possibility. so they traveled across the atlantic and lands in france and starts traveling toward paris. and before he arrives in paris, the american ambassador who was already there robert living stone approached who is that
. as you know, ron paul has called for the federal reserve to be shut down. one interesting reason, i thought, is that he wants to bring money back to congress. whereby they can do so without charging interest to itself. as was done prior to 1913. it was also something that thomas jefferson and andrew jackson warned about. having big bank takeover. he basically charged interest on money that they created out of nothing to begin with. >> guest: you know, the focus of money was really sort of outside four corners of my job. but what i would do is recommend to just about anyone, i am reading the white house is burning books and they do a wonderful historical account of what you're talking about. also how to place today. so i will defer to them because they hide a high degree of expertise in that area. i will just say the wonderful book. >> host: here is neil barofsky's bestseller, "bailout: an inside account of how washington abandoned main street while rescuing wall street." he has been our guest here on booktv. >> booktv is on facebook. like us or interact with us and watch videos and
it in the world of ron cason is? >> george is one of the things, and i'll say this in modest and i'm proudest of the abc news, george was a contributor on the roundtable this week when i came in. one of the first things i did was i sat down with him because i've gotten to know him all little bit, and i see how intelligent he is, but also what a wonderful student he is. i mean, unlike many broadcasters he's willing to go back and relearn things and learn from his mistakes. so i sat down with him and said george, i don't know what you want to do, at the time his teaching, he just written his book about his experience in the clinton administration. and i said i don't know what you want to do but if you want to give all this up and just go into journalism obama i think he would be great. he said it's funny, i've been thinking that's what i'd like to do. i told him, the problem is you have to go back to the beginning. you will have to learn this crap you don't have. whether it's reading a teleprompter or stand up or whatever. he did it. when we moved into the anchor of this week on sunday morning,

[laughter] sometimes i am very modest about the introduction. don't go overboard but just something simple like not since mark twain. [laughter] i am not here to boast but the only fault with the introduction he did not mention was the first novel ever written. i regret to say there has not been a bandwagon of people trying to right novels since then. i thought i would talk since "dogfight" is a result of what we call deadline poetry. talk about "deadline poet" poet", some years ago with an author's guild benefit there is a program organized in which 45 authors rejected famous works of literature.

leagues in the area. the reality is this. in the football coach ron we always talked to fight through it. the breaking point as we talk about earlier when you come to the realization of who do we leave this responsibility, and this responsibility to? at some point we have to take that responsibility from the coaches and even the leagues because many leagues i work with our own, not governed by u.s. a football at pop warner. scott can't come down until every coach in the united states of america that this is the way you need to do it so what we try to do with the league and i will share this as an example that this is what you are fighting at the grass-roots level, number one, i played eight -- we went to a league and approached the league and did you know what we want to do? we played at the highest levels so there is a model standard already out there. be nfl and the nfl p a set the standard for you've coaches. the problem is they don't embrace changes because it is all about winning. when it is good, nobody remembers years from now. what matters is the effect of the game. what we tried
and appreciated the comments about various boards, people forget that and ron was compliant already with sarbanes oxley board requirements so it would not have made a difference. it is helpful to get a little background, what led you to pick the firm is you did for failure and success? >> next question. we started out, i was looking all over for successful firms and i remember asking about a number of firms and making preliminary contacts, they were not relevant to what we were looking at, the commission was looking at a range of firms so that gave me my opening. when we interviewed fannie mae and the deep dive going down from the ceo through people inside the organization, we didn't have time, we only had a year to finish our work and we worked on a tight budget but i insisted we do some studies of freddie mac, let's find out what the parallels are so we interviewed a number of risk officers at freddie mac and the ceo and others and it built out, and when i said back at the end i looked and the one institution we didn't interview was td bank in canada, we didn't interview td bank but i started l
and not driven by patients i ron ackley and the organizations that see the based health care and they want to do something about it and we see the surgeons, the society, the firm and six surgeons, we are seeing the organizations, all of these organizations together we think it is the right thing to do to be transparent about what we do. we are proud of our results. we have got nothing to hide the public should see it any way because we are honest and transparent as soon as i learned about this i ran to a patient's bedside and i said i'm sorry you didn't get your cat scan because it was a mistake i will make sure that you do it right away. to the other patient, i said we are sorry but it was intended for someone else, it was a mistake i'm sorry i will share the results with you. the patient so or not amedori like i thought they would be. they looked at me with a sense of appreciation. thank you for being honest with me, doctor. and i feel like a patient is a lot of times just want honesty and treated like any of their business and that is what people are hungry for in health care, and that is wha

, but public at large. this was initiated by our friend ed reilly and ron brownstein of national journal and post the economic crisis, we decided to see what the american public perceptions were as to what was happening in their lives and the economy. and part of the notion over the years is, if you will, to sort of give voice to middle class and american public opinions as to what's happening with our economy and, in particular, their lives. we have conducted quite literally over 25,000 interviews, 25,000 over the last four years. so there's a positive story here of data which is extraordinary which is available at nationaljournal.com, it's available at allstate and the heart land monitor, and i really recommend it to all of you as a database that gives a pretty good sense of what the public has been thinking and really gives voice, if you will, to the middle class. the survey that we're talking about today that ed reilly's going to present has a slightly different orientation, and that is to say we're doing a little more towards what does the public want to see done as opposed to just
a provocative. in this election season we heard that ron paul talks about the ghost on the back? >> no. that is not on the real agenda. we get along okay. >> but i wrote an essay or a book about gold that i recommend and a new edition has come out. but the gold standard, you really have to stick to it. and who thinks after we went off at somebody will stick through thick and thin? to get on the gold standard technically you have to replace all of the dollar's because the price of gold would have to be enormous. >> as a question from both of you you believe the large-scale all asset purchases are effective? >> they're asking if they are effective. >> i cannot comment on that. with a success of effort of kiwi one, qe2 is just not done effectively but straightforward with the central banking. it goes as far as it can go. there is nothing magic in my view. >> i see qe2 should have been the name of the boat to [laughter] there is nothing more than the open market operation which has been around for the longest time. they have a mortgage securities now the focus is not so much to reserve the
. my name is ron sarazen and i am president of the united states capitol of the historical society. memories that have shaped the public careers of these senators. it is hoped that this will provide listeners with a deep appreciation for the human dimension of representative government we know as the united states capitol. senator daniel k. inoye was named after a methodist minister. in march 1943, he enlisted in the only second regimental combat team. he saw combat in italy and southern france and was badly wounded during an engagement for which he was awarded the distinguished service cross, which was later upgraded to the medal of honor. the highest award for military valor. with financial assistance from the g.i. bill, inouye graduated from the university of hawaii and the george washington university law school. when hawaii became a state on august 21, 1959, daniel inouye won elections for the united states house of representatives is the new states first congressman. later collected the united states senate in 1962, he currently is serving his eighth term in the united states
and they are the mainstream republican party. libertarians need no introduction. the ron paul revolution in the constitution. bill left, however, is a little bit trickier to define because i see them as splitting into liberals and conservatives, liberals and progressives of the liberals being more like that tony blair, the bill clinton win a democratic party because they do tend to favor economic outcomes and they're ought to control economic outcomes that's their main focus think of the unionized police officers and progressives are an entirely different beast and these are the people, the typical tree hugging san francisco liberals these are the people that interested in not just economic outcomes but also social outcomes. they talk about drugs and sex how progressives are talking about whether or not you can put salt on your french fries and whether or not you can have a plastic bag or drink a soda. michael bloomberg a great example, he is banning the cuts in new york city. so that and we are talking about, that ideology on the left, the progressive ideology. swatter some of the mifsud are commonly held

it was resolved when the ron reagan was elected. you read the biographies of the hostage-takers, they act like a cowboy. their release the hostages the moment he was sworn in. it's not that well-known, but the soviets were taken hostage at their embassy at the same time. the soviets threatened to bomb tehran. their hostages were let go. it's also important to note that the iran-iraq board came to an end when the u.s. mistakenly shot down an iranian civil airline. the iranians thought, well, the u.s. is going to get into this war no-holds-barred and the ayatollah made a speech. during the poisoned chalice. the cards were such that he had to simply take the best deal he could. that recommending they bond in iranian airline. on to say their is a lesson there. they backed down in the face of a credible threat of force. at the same time, if you were the iranians your thinking to yourself, well, what can i learn from the example of india and pakistan? they detonated a nuclear bombs. sanctions imposed on them for a while. a few years later there were lifted. the iranians, you think yourself, well, al
